India awakes by James Tusty & Maureen Castle Tusty

0:19:00 | English, Hindi | India

 

India is coming alive and flourishing economically. In fact, Citigroup estimates that by 2050, it will have the world’s largest economy, larger than China and the United States. For many centuries, only the politically connected and elite prospered in India, while the rest of the population lived in poverty. However, since 1991, 250 million people have been lifted out of poverty and are finding new ways to flex their personal and economic power.

Banwari Lal Sharma, the president of a new street vendors association, is helping vendors in his area feel more empowered and able to stand up for their legal rights, after years of having to pay bribes to corrupt local officials.

Rama Bhai, a Sagai village leader and farmer, comes from a group called the ‘forest people,’ who were once viewed as trespassers on the land where they have lived for generations. Through an unusual use of GPS systems and Google Earth they have now obtained deeds to their land.

And Mannem Madhusudana Rao, who was born to one of the lowest rungs of India’s caste system, the “dalit,” was able to break free from the chains that have bound his societal position to a life of poverty. Through hard work and perseverance, Rao formed a major construction firm and has a much higher quality of life for himself and his extended family, along with a new status of “millionaire.”

“India Awakes” reveals the enormous power of unlocking human potential and ambition, and how doing so could establish this country as a preeminent world leader.

Yet, these are growing in size, engaging a larger number of visitors each year. Sonpur offers a variety of experiences. This is where faith, commerce and entertainment meet.

00:21:00 | Hindi | Kutch, India

zar-zameen

Clouds form in the sky as Shakur, an old tailor sits down to work. He hopes that rain will come soon. Saleem has wandered off into the Grasslands looking for pasture for his cattle. Nature has been both harsh and giving to this nomadic, cattle herding community of Kutch. They recollect everything that they have lost over the years, Patiently waiting for the monsoon. Rain would mean lush green grazing land for their cattle. It would mean the revival of the barren desert land. But most of all, It’s a reminder that nothing, not even adversity, can last forever.

street-tales

10 hours. 10 voices. 10 stories. People from the streets of Yangon share not only how they struggle each day, but more so, how they keep hope in their hearts. By hearing their tales, we prove that they are more than just numbers in statistics. Inevitably, they reveal how ordinary people thrive (and survive) in a democracy.

Caste on the Menu Card by Ananyaa Gaur, Anurup Khillare, Atul Anand, Reetika Revathy Subramanian & Vaseem Chaudh

 0:21:00 | Hindi, English | Mumbai, India

caste-on-the-menu-card

The film delves into the idea of food as a site of exclusion by focusing on beef-eating practices in Mumbai. It attempts to portray the prevalence of caste differentiations as seen in the food choices of people in the city, and touches upon concerns related to livelihood, social inclusion and human rights. By tracing the mythological and historical roots of the meat-eating culture in our country, the film discusses the hierarchy maintained by Brahminical preferences and its intended subversions. This is seen in the stand taken on dealing with the political economy of the leather and meat industries. The film follows the ruptured background of universities’ caste politics over the demand of inclusion of beef in institutions. It observes that many restaurants in Mumbai offer beef delicacies, but off the menu. Thus, the film title reads ‘Caste on the Menu Card’.

Delhi Fear and Freedom by Raja Shabir Khan

0:52:00 | Hindi, English | New Delhi, India

delhi-fear-and-freedom

India has seen lot of developments in the recent years. Women are working in almost all fields that were once thought of as men’s bastion. But there is much more to it than meets the eye. The film looks at Delhi through the eyes of three women from different social backgrounds. The recent rape incident in Delhi has raised lot of questions about safety of women. The mistreatment and abuse of women is a particular problem in Delhi and northern India. Nivedita, the seemingly strong and powerful lady cop sometimes also feels vulnerable.

A tyre recycling workshop in South Okkalapa in Myanmar’s former capital of Yangon is a site of multiple uses and multiple deaths, for this is the place where defunct tyres are transformed from their original shape and use, and are reborn into new and completely different lives.
